With the holidays rapidly approaching, now is the time to think about corporate gifts. Thoughtfully chosen corporate gifts show appreciation for employees or clients. Create a positive vibe around the office with gifts for the staff, or keep clients loyal with personalized luxury gifts.
The best corporate gifts are useful. Useful doesn’t necessarily mean the gift has to be practical. A luxurious, pampering gift such as a spa gift box engraved with your logo or scented candles will make the recipient feel appreciated. Food items such as chocolates or nuts are always appreciated, as well. Practical gifts are great, too, because the recipient may use the gift often–for example a mobile charger or thermal mug.
Corporate gifts can help keep your company on the mind of your customer, and associate your company with a positive feeling. Customers and clients will think of your company when they use the gift, and will feel valued. Send an elegant gift such as a leather journal personalized with his or her name embossed on the cover, or a gift basket tailored to his or her interests.
To truly make customers and employees feel appreciated and valued, include a personal, handwritten note with the gift. This shows more effort and will have a greater impact than simply sending out the same gift and generic card to everyone. A handwritten note makes the recipient feel that time and effort was put into the gift. Customized note cards with your company logo and message are a great, as long as a personal written note is inside.
Don’t forget your employees who keep your business running. As with gifts for clients, the best gifts for employees are thoughtful and useful. Gifts such as a basket of gourmet snacks, a gift card to a favorite restaurant, or tech gadgets are popular corporate gift items.
Corporate gifts are not just for the holidays! Gifts are even more appreciated at unexpected times. Surprise an employee with a gift recognizing an above-and-beyond effort, or send a client a fun gift on a different holiday such as St. Patrick’s Day or Valentine’s Day.
